Foundation and Elena L. Christian Junior H.S. to Celebrate Successes

Nov. 30, 2006 – The St. Croix Foundation, in partnership with Elena L. Christian Junior High School, will host an incentive program and pep rally at 12:30 p.m., on Friday, Dec. 1, in the school's auditorium. The event will celebrate and reward students and faculty for their successes in academics and service.
A key component of the Foundation's Model Schools Initiative is the awards ceremony, which provides students and administrators with incentives for continued growth and achievement.
"The Foundation believes that recognizing students, teachers as well as the school's dedicated support staff for even the smallest successes is one of the most effective motivational tools," said the Foundation's Chief Operations Officer Deanna James.
"The Foundation has seen Elena Christian through some major challenges over the last two school years and is continually awed by the staff and administrators who demonstrate true commitment to their students each day. Friday's ceremony is hopefully one of many opportunities we will have to say 'thank you,'" she said.
Other critical components of the schools initiative include; reading remediation, standardized test prep, a youth philanthropy project and administrative supports. Each piece ultimately serves to fulfill the foundation's overarching and long-term goal of developing a strategic and collaborative approach to transforming public education in the Virgin Islands.
Friday's Incentive Program will recognize individuals in citizenship, leadership, most books read, most improved behavior, innovative teaching and service. It hopes to offer bigger and better rewards in the future and urges local businesses and the community at large to support this effort by providing tax-deductible donations, gift certificates or discounts.
